    Description

    Gus Arriola Gordo Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-9 (United Feature Syndicate, 1950s). A transitional episode in Arriola's bold development of the Sunday Gordo half-page from conventional panel layouts into fully Expressionistic compositions. Gordo Lopez's household menagerie is napping -- but Senor Dog is tormented by fleas. So he swipes a bottle of heavy-duty perfume from Gordo's bath. Two frenzied silhouette panels and a panel-in-panel insert (showing the fleas jumping ship) convey the Expressionist urgency that would come to dominate the Sunday spread during the 1960s. Dated as to month/day, with no year stated. Ink on Bristol. Image area, 22.75" x 15.25". Moderately toned, with spot-staining. Very Good condition.
